Cosmetic dentistry is a specialized field within dentistry dedicated to enhancing the aesthetic aspects of a person’s smile. While traditional dentistry primarily focuses on addressing oral health issues, cosmetic dentistry goes beyond that to improve the visual appeal of teeth and gums. It offers a wide range of procedures and treatments, including teeth whitening, which removes stains and discoloration, dental veneers that cover imperfections, and dental implants to replace missing teeth, creating a more attractive and harmonious smile.
Furthermore, orthodontic treatments like braces or clear aligners are commonly used in cosmetic dentistry to correct misaligned teeth and create a straighter, more appealing smile. Cosmetic dentists work closely with patients to understand their unique goals and tailor treatments to achieve their desired outcomes, whether it’s achieving whiter teeth, repairing chipped or damaged teeth, or achieving a complete smile makeover. The field of cosmetic dentistry not only enhances a person’s appearance but can also boost their self-esteem and overall sense of well-being, making it a popular choice for those seeking to improve their smile.
Teeth Whitening: Brighten your smile with our in-office and at-home teeth whitening treatments. Whether you prefer a quick in-office procedure or the convenience of whitening at home, we can effectively eliminate yellowing and discoloration, giving you a whiter, brighter smile.
Porcelain Veneers: Custom-designed porcelain veneers are the solution for issues like gaps, chips, stains, misalignment, and other dental imperfections. Crafted to mimic your natural teeth, these thin porcelain sheaths enhance your smile for years to come.
Cosmetic Bonding: Correct spaces, gaps, small chips, and various other dental issues with our cosmetic dental bonding. This minimally invasive procedure employs a durable ceramic resin to renew your teeth with long-lasting results, often requiring just one office visit.
Tooth-Colored Fillings: Say farewell to old metal and mercury fillings. Tooth-colored fillings, also known as composite or “white” fillings, utilize a durable composite resin material that blends seamlessly with your natural teeth. These fillings not only look great but also reduce health and environmental risks associated with traditional filling materials. They are an excellent choice for new cavities or replacing existing metal fillings with a safer, more aesthetically pleasing alternative.
Customized Treatments for Each Unique Patient, Using Advanced Technology for Natural-Looking Results
Inlays and Onlays: Address mild to moderate decay on your back teeth with dental inlays and onlays. This conservative treatment can prevent minor issues from escalating, reducing the need for more invasive dental procedures. Inlays and onlays are crafted from strong porcelain and bonded to the affected areas, providing a natural look.
Gum Recontouring: Excess gum tissue that causes a “gummy smile” can be resolved with non-invasive laser dentistry. Dr. Hoopes can reduce gum tissue and enhance the aesthetics of your gums and teeth through gum recontouring, creating a balanced and attractive smile.
Invisalign®: For a discreet approach to teeth straightening, consider Invisalign. This clear braces system involves wearing a series of plastic aligners to gradually correct teeth misalignment. Invisalign offers the convenience of being removable for easy cleaning, without the visible wires and brackets of traditional braces.
Smile Makeover: A smile makeover is a comprehensive dental solution addressing various cosmetic concerns related to teeth and gums. Tailored to your specific needs and goals, this combination treatment can resolve issues such as gaps, stains, chips, cracks, misalignments, missing teeth, and excess gum tissue. Common procedures during a smile makeover include porcelain veneers, Invisalign®, dental implants, gum reshaping, teeth whitening, and more. The result is a beautifully enhanced smile you can proudly show off.
